Is there an easy way to install multiple fonts in LibreOffice? I am a relative newcomer to the Raspberry PI. I am using a Raspberry Pi 4b with Raspbian installed. I know some basic commands (sudo, apt-get etc.) So far I am basically ignorant when it come to file handling using the terminal window. I am quite proficient using file manager though. Please help if you can.

  • Are they listed here: packages.debian.org/stable/fonts? -> with apt-get. Or if you have the .ttf file, something like this: vitux.com/how-to-install-custom-fonts-on-a-debian-10-system You are not confined to Raspbian. Google for Debian/Ubuntu solutions, Raspbian is a derivative – Swedgin May 28 '20 at 12:27
  • Thank you so much for your reply. I have managed to install the font manager and, install two fonts.You have uncrossed my eyes and now, my hair can start to grow back! I'm not sure how easy that would be for someone that has never dealt with similar problems before but thankfully I, found it pretty straightforward. Can I do anything to up your reputation score or, is that automatic now that my question is answered? – Chris Seymour May 28 '20 at 13:02

  • If you like the MS fonts there is a way of installing them without having to rip them out of Office - documented itsfoss.com/install-microsoft-fonts-ubuntu – user115418 May 28 '20 at 15:24
  • The question really does not belong to Raspberry Pi. – Ingo May 30 '20 at 8:22

There are 2 ways to do this.

  1. by using apt-get like you would install any other package if the font you want is listed in https://packages.debian.org/stable/fonts/

  2. Install font-manager and download the .ttf font file from the internet. Open font-manager and click on the + button to add your downloaded font. (taken from https://vitux.com/how-to-install-custom-fonts-on-a-debian-10-system/)

Don't limit your google searches to Raspbian. Since it's a derivative of Debian, solutions for Debian/Ubuntu will also work.

  • Thank you for your help and, great suggestions. Voted you up but due to my low level it doesn't show in the post but, apparently is recorded. I also ticked to say that yours was the best answer, hope this helps you and, once again, thank you for all your help it, is most appreciated. – Chris Seymour May 28 '20 at 20:25
